It took the men from the Caribbean almost 7 days in the series to finally put up a respectable performance on board and save some grace.

The current state of the West Indies test side is so derelict that even a loss by 177 runs seems to be “respectable” for them! Australia declared on their overnight score of 179-3 with skipper Steve Smith remaining unbeaten on 70.

Braithwaite and Chandrika looked good initially as both were dismissed in their 30’s. The two were well set and could have easily gone on to play big knocks had they been patient.

The middle order once again displayed the sorry old picture of the West Indians, as Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Marsh ran havoc in the helpless middle order. The lower order comprising mainly of wicketkeeper Dinesh Ramdin and skipper Jason Holder saved the visitors from utter humiliation as the duo registered their half centuries.

 

Their exact 100 run stand was entertaining and ironic at the same time. Formalities were completed late in the evening as Mitchell Marsh dismissed Jerome Taylor to wrap up the West Indies innings.

Nathan Lyon was named the Man of the Match for his fantastic bowling performance. Below, are the statistical highlights for the fourth day’s play.

1. 0.125. West Indies’ win loss ratio in 2015.

2. 2012. The last time West Indies batted for more than 80 overs in both the innings of an overseas test.

3. 19. The number of individual test centuries scored by Australia in 2015.

4. 8. Most number of test matches lost by West Indies in a calendar year.

5. 51.69. Darren Bravo averages the most for a West Indian batsman while playing overseas.
